Is there an REST API for App Variables?

Hi,

 

I know in Qlik Application Automation there is the Qlik Cloud Services blocks category there is a block to update variable in the app.  Is there an REST API endpoint i can use to use this same feature outwith Qlik, ie Postman or MS Power Automate?  

 

I have tried looking at the APIs | Qlik Developer Portal and Get started with the Variable API | Qlik Developer Portal but cant get it to work for me.

GET -- {tenent_url}/apps/{appID}/variables    > to list variables but nothing

 

Thanks in advance.

You need to go through the engine API to update variables. That API is based on JSON-RPC over websockets, so you can't do this with a REST call. The endpoint you are looking for is this:
